EK Launches First Magnitude-Based Multiblock Made for Z490 Aorus Xtreme Motherboard
EK-Quantum Momentum Aorus Z490 Xtreme D-RGB
This is a completely new approach to liquid-cool the Intel® Socket 1200 Series processors and the entire VRM section of the Aorus Z490 Xtreme motherboard.
This is the first EK Momentum series monoblock that utilizes the award-winning EK Magnitude CPU water block cooling engine. This water block directly cools the Intel 1200 socket-type CPU, as well as the power stages, chokes, and 10G LAN controller chip. Liquid flows directly over all critical areas, providing enthusiasts with a great solution for high and stable overclocks. This monoblock also comes with sophisticated addressable D-RGB lighting, which connects to a standard 3-pin 5V D-RGB addressable header, called D_LED (Addressable LED Strip Header) on the Aorus Z490 Xtreme.
The entire CPU block part of this multiblock connects to special nickel-plated barb push-in fittings located on the VRM block, as it latches to the barb fittings. Thanks to this design, the new multiblock works exceptionally well with delidded and polished IHS but will surely not work as a direct die cooling method. The enclosed thermal pad is used on voltage regulator modules to improve stability and performance and prolong the lifespan of the motherboard.
The purest nickel-plated copper available on the market is used for the cold plate, precisely machined to a dense micro-fin structure. The top of the monoblock features a mix of CNC-machined glass-like cast acrylic, nickel-plated brass, and an Elox Black Aluminum piece.
A Digital (addressable) 3-pin 5V D-RGB LED strip is installed in the Plexi version of the monoblock. It connects to the motherboard’s 3-pin LED header, or it can be connected to any other supported 5V 3-pin LED controller. This product is compatible with Gigabyte RGB Fusion 2.0 control software. The arrow marking on the 3-pin D-RGB LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the D_LED header.
You can always check for compatible water blocks in the EK Cooling Configurator database, where compatible graphics cards and motherboards are added to the list daily.
